1>Arabian Bride ran very well on its debut at Carlisle over this distance on good to firm going but hasn't run to that level since and looks like it might need a longer trip to show its best.
2>Commander Patten has only produced slow times and would need to improve beyond all recognition to win this, it has won over course and distance but in a very slow time.
3>Mo Henry has only had three runs and the best of those was at Wolverhampton but only over five furlongs so could have some improvement still to come but its not for me.
4>Lackaday has won a race but it was on heavy going so I doubt it will show its best on this much faster surface.
5>Anastazia recorded a time at Wolverhampton over this distance that makes it second on my figures so must have some degree of a chance here but that course has been running very fast lately.
6>Classic Seniority is held on form by Anastazia and although it likes to track the pace it needs to improve quite a bit to win this.
7>Jimmy's Hall won last time out at Wolverhampton at this distance and if it repeats that form here it looks the most likely winner as its very well weighted and it may have a couple of pounds in hand, it had poor form earlier in the season but now its on a upward curve theres no telling how much more improvement there is still to come.
SUMMARY: There's only seven runners so not really a race to back a horse each way but the betting for a small field is quite open with the favourite being a 3/1 shot there's only a limited amount of form to work with in this nursery but i do think that JIMMY'S HALL 9/1 has been a slow developer and now its in winning form it could go to improve again, it has already recorded the fastest time although it was at Wolverhampton but this course has the same surface so any improvement could see it win nicely.
Jimmy's Hall 10/1 3rd
